Missouri men's basketball team imposes postseason ban due to NCAA violations


It's another bad season for the University of Missouri men's basketball program and it looks like it's about to get worse. 

According to a statement released by the university, the program has been working with the NCAA about allegations about recruiting violations during the 2013-2014 season. 

In this statement, it has come to light that these violations have been going on since 2011, ranging from level I infractions, where donors gave benefits to student athletes, all the way to level III, where a former coach relocated a player's mother to help her with rental housing. 

Due to these violations, the University of Missouri has vacated all wins from the 2013-2014 season, when the team went 23 and 12. 

The university has also placed a self-imposed one year ban on all postseason activity for the 2015-2016 season, resulting in the team not participating in the 2016 SEC tournament, or any other postseason competition sanctioned by the NCAA.

Missouri athletic director Mack Rhoades and MU head basketball coach Kim Anderson will hold a press conference Wednesday at 4 p.m.
